I’ve been weathering the storm the best I can and have a feeling that sunny skies are just around the corner.
I walk to and from work almost everyday. At first, I was cranky about that walk. Due to construction downtown, I had to take a route that was longer and more winding. Then, I started to notice things I liked about that route. It goes from a residential downtown area covered with trees and beautiful greenery and then opens up to a vast concrete expanse once I hit 6th street. On my walk I pass by beautiful flowers. The smell of rosemary bushes is pungent and fresh at one street corner. One day, on my walk home, I was surrounded by butterflies. It was magical.
I love my walk because it gets me ready for my day in the morning. At the end of the day, it is a way for me to reflect and decompress.
The construction on the easy route has opened up in the past few weeks. I took it once. It’s just not the same as my usual path.
This question is suuuuper similar (practically the same) to question #7. Just sayin’…I feel like I’ve answered this already.
